I am hiding, behind a mask, in a shell.

As long as i keep smiling

they'll never have to know

I'll keep it all inside me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The pain will never show

I'll act as though im normal

I'll hide inside my shell

No one will ever think to ask

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

so i'll never have to tell

I will hide behind my mask

I will live a life of lies

No one will have to see my anger

no one will hear my cries

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And in the darkness of my room

I will hide beneath the bed

Though literally I am alive

Inside me i feel dead.
